I started massage as soon as I was able to co-ordinate my hands and arms, so around the age of 3!!

In many Indian families, it is a tradition for the mums to massage the children from a few weeks after birth. It encourages bonding and good health as well as help digestion which every mother will know trying to get a good nights sleep!

Children as soon as soon as they are able to, start to massage their parents who by that time need it!

I have combined all my experiences over the years to make every massage unique to each client’s needs and expectations.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the most commonly offered and best-known type of massage. During Swedish massage, massage therapists use oil to facilitate long, gliding strokes over the entire body. If it's your first time, Swedish massage is the perfect place to start.

Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits. Other Swedish massage moves include kneading, friction, tapping and stretching.

They're designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you more relaxed.

During Swedish massage you're underneath a towel or sheet and you keep your underwear on. The therapist uncovers only the part of the body he is working on, a technique called "draping".

They're designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you more relaxed.

Swedish massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This sensitivity to pressure makes it ideal for relaxation.

Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for:
  • enhanced feelings of relaxation and contentment
  • easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
  • relief from pain, e.g. headaches and back pain
  • improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
  • helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
  • Increased energy levels and feelings of vitality
  • reducing emotional and physical stress.
  • A general sense of health and well-being

Aromatherapy combines the use of essential oils and therapeutic massage. The oils, which come from plants, are highly concentrated and very powerful and are added to base oils or lotions. Essential oils possess natural healing properties – without harmful side-effects. The word aromatherapy is derived from two words aroma which means smell and therapy which stands for healing. Aromatherapy is helpful for many health conditions.

How does aromatherapy massage work?

The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones.

When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system.

Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin.

Each essential oil has different healing properties. For example, some calm while others energize. Here are some widely used essential oils and their properties:
  • calming – chamomile, lavender, geranium
  • uplifting – ylang ylang, clary sage, rose, neroli
  • energizing – rosemary
  • cleansing – rosemary
  • decongesting – eucalyptus, pine, tea tree

Why do people get aromatherapy massage?
Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to conditions involving stress or improving emotionally-related conditions.

Stress. We all know that some stress is good for us. But when the balance is tipped, stress can very quickly take hold and start to affect us adversely. Some people will present to an Aromatherapist with stress, whilst others will present with the physical complaints that arise from it; i.e. disturbed sleep, anxiety, mood swings, skin rashes, headaches, fatigue etc. A compromised immune system may mean that they are ‘picking up’ all sorts of colds and infections. Essential oils exert a subtle influence on the mind and combined with massage and the care of a good therapist, they offer a truly holistic, gentle and natural way of achieving balance in your life.

Bad Backs. Stress is also responsible for many bad backs; tensed muscles in the upper back, neck and shoulders lead to spasm, pain and discomfort. Aromatherapy treatments help to relieve the pain and tension and re-educate you about your back, help with your posture and remind you to relax. Many bad backs are caused by muscular problems. Massage is very effective here, it can break up tissue adhesions, improve muscle tone, boost the circulation and increase feelings of well-being. It helps to eliminate toxins and is also useful for all those who enjoy sports.

Aromatherapy is very effective for the relief of the following conditions: depression and nervous tension, fatigue (including chronic) and ME, menstrual problems and the menopause, poor circulation, high blood pressure, respiratory conditions including asthma and sinusitis, rheumatism, arthritis and joint mobility, skin conditions.

Indian Head Massage is a relaxing and de-stressing massage of the scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper arms. Oil to the scalp is optional.

Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate.

What are the benefits?

Indian head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue, and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension. It is the centre of our nervous system, and home to our identity and intelligence. The Chakra at the top of our head (Crown Chakra) is the one we use to communicate with our higher self. If our head feels good, we feel good.
